Pros: Close to the center, the terrace was appreciated . The staff was nice.
Cons: Hard to open the door to the terrace, the air con was noisy. Soap and shampoo were cheap.. The breakfast is in the basement with no windows which is a pity. We were there for scuba diving and had to leave the hotel a 8:15 am, and the staff didn’t want to provide us with a breakfast to takeaway despite our request. This was also disappointing considering the price of the room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location. Our balcony had a view of San Jose and its bay. The staff was most smiling and helpful. The facilities were excellent.
Cons: We came in late at night and we found hard to find the place as the last roundabout is very dark and leads to an even darker road. There is a Vistalmar sign but we could not see it. It would help if it was lit.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great value for money, clean apartment with excellent facilities in an ideal location. A 10 minute walk to the town with lots of different places to eat and drink.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is just as pictured. It's a lovely cosy, tastefully decorated, traditional place to stay. My room was spotless. My bed was very comfortable. Little fridge in room was helpful. Bath and shower. Air con. Lively and quiet, didn't get disturbed once. The staff were so lovely. I have very limited Spanish, but we managed to communicate together (English, Spanish, French and mime! All in same sentence often!). All staff worked so hard to keep everything clean and relaxed. They were friendly and attentive. The fabulous lady who made breakfast (Which was perfect and only 5 euros) was very soothing and warm in her manner. She couldn't do enough for me. A perfect start to the day! The location is perfect. 2 min walk to restaurants. 5 min walk to the spectacular beaches. Bank/shops all few min walk. All in all I loved this hotel, it's location and San Jose! I was a solo female traveller and felt very safe at all times here. Highly recommend. I will certainly return. Muchas gracias!
Cons: It would have been nice if the bar had been open in the evenings, but it makes strategic sense to close it out of season and there are lots of restaurants/bars a few minutes walk away. An honesty bar???
10.0 Excellent

Do check out the local wild beaches Playa Genovese for example.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely little hotel, spotlessly clean, great breakfast, 5 mins walk from beach, 1 min walk from small restaurants. Excellent value for money. One very helpful and pleasant lady on the staff who seems to do everything (very well)!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The property was quite close to shops and restaurants in San Jose. The room was clean and comfortable. San Jose is an appealing small town with enough infrastructure to make for a pleasant stay.
Cons: The decor of the room was very dated and off putting. It only needs a quick makeover to make it more appealing. The balcony was very small in the room we stayed with a view over someone’s neglected backyard - not very enticing.

8.8 Excellent (78 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Hostal del Cabo in Nijar, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park and San Jose Beach.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable room great location
Cons: The room had a kettle and a fridge but only came with two paper cups which were not replaced for our second night having used them for a glass of wine on the first evening and reused for coffee in the morning we had to go out and buy a couple of mugs/glasses to use the following evening and for coffee the next morning provision of more paper or plastic cups would have made the stay perfect !
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location. Good sized room with fridge, safe, kettle, hairdryer, AC. Balcony big enough for table and two chairs, overlooking town and sea.
6.7 Good
Pros: The location of the property on the left side of San José nestled at the foot of the mountain is perfect. The view in the morning and evening is beautiful. The beach can’t be viewed from the ground floor apartments but this didn’t detract. The beach is 5 minutes away via some steps which might be a problem for anybody with mobility issues but for us it was perfect. A small supermarket and all the shops and restaurants of Sam José are minutes away.
Cons: It is part of a chain of hostels and hotels that include the MC San José across the town. We stayed there last year and found cleanliness was below par. Nothing too horrendous just little things like sand and dirt in places that should be cleaned between guests and some of the self catering equipment less than sparkling. But it was better than our experience at the sister hotel last year.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: very nice location
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect! Huge room with comfy bed, balcony with amazing sea view. Big bathroom. Fridge in the room. Very quiet and relaxing, the only sound you hear it's the waves. Easy on street parking. Close to restaurants and shops. Wishing to come back soon! Cabo de Gata is gorgeous, hope it stays like this forever!
Cons: Just a minor detail, the first day there were coffee sachets, but they weren't replaced the following days.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location, view, balcony.
Cons: The so called kitchen facilities were very meagre.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely, spacious room, really comfortable, plenty of storage and mini-fridge! Great view of the beach/town from the little balcony, really serene at night. Although you could happily spend a couple of days on the gorgeous beach in San Jose, the nearby beaches of Genoveses and Monsul are essential! Stay at least a couple of nights and explore Cabo de Gata. Phenomenal area and the hostal was a great base and a one minute walk to the beach, restaurants etc.
Cons: Loads of little flies in the room that seemed to come from the air-conditioning. Not the bitey kind, fortunately.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place it’s only 1 minute walk from the beach, have a big terrace (we were using it to leave the SUP board) and two very big separated room!! It looks more like an apartment without a kitchen rather than an hotel room!! Also the two bathrooms (one per each room) was a plus!
Cons: The restaurant in the terrace is not the best for dinner! You probably will notice that it is mostly empty.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Stunning view from the room, lovely beach and good seafood in the restaurant and on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Really friendly and helpful staff and good price performance ratio!
7.5 Good
Pros: We loved the private room terrace where to enjoy a meal with a seaview. Also we loved the swimming pool and the location of the hotel just a few steps away from all main restaurants.
Cons: The Wifi internet connection was not reliable: it was not available for a whole day and the remaining days was only working on and off. Also walls are really thin so you can easily hear people next door or people passing through the corridor.
7.0 Good
Cons: Our room needed some maintenance on its doors, the ceiling and in the bathroom.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Above expectations in every way. Great location, and private terrace with stunning views of the harbour and beaches.
Cons: Nothing
6.3 Good
Pros: THE VIEWS WERE TERRIFIC , THE BASIC FACILITIES WERE ADEQUATE. THE OFFER OF A SPA TREATMENT WAS THOROUGHLY ENJOYED ,HOWEVER IT WAS 20 KMS AWAY FORTUNATELY WE HAD TRANSPORT. THE CLEANLINESS WAS SECOND TO NONE. THE STAFF WERE EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL..
Cons: LOCATION WAS HALF WAY WAY UP A STEEP HILL, , ALL ACCOMMODATION WAS UP EXTERIOR STEPS WHICH WAS DIFFICULT FOR MY PARTNER TO CLIMB, WHEN BOOKING WE WERE NOT TOLD THAT THE RESTAURANT WOULD BE CLOSED (ONLY OPEN FOR BREAKFAST), SO THEREFORE A TRIP INTO THE VILLAGE EACH NIGHT FOR A MEAL INSTEAD OF STAYING LOCAL, THE PICS OF THE RESTAURANT ON THE SITE WERE THE REASON WE BOOKED THIS PARTICULAR ACCOMMODATION. THE BEDS WERE UNCOMFORTABLE.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were wonderful. Everyone ha time to answer questions. We had a bit of a mix up with our room but it was sorted super quick and the woman who dealt with it couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. In the end the room we had was wonderful. I was worried about being up high but the building is stepped up the hill and so you can easily get out on all floors. That is a real bonus for me as I have an anxiety disorder so this is very important. The view from our room was just stunning. We watched the sun come up every morning over the whole bay. Breakfast was great value for money.
Cons: Can I suggest two improvements. The first is that we couldn't get the light to go on on the outside stair when we left early in the morning to come home and it was dark. Maybe a fuse had blown and it's not normally like that. The other suggestion might be more tricky. It would have been great to have had access to cooking facilities. A separate shared kitchen. I think you could still provide breakfast and evening meals as people would still be glad to have them but it gets a bit boring going out for meals every day. But I understand if that is not possible and we are already planning to come back next year. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff superb friendly welcoming . Second time here will be back again. View from balcony amazing breakfast excellent hotel bedroom absolutly lovely.

Pros: It is located in the middle of Cabo de Gata beach route. It’s a perfect starting point either you want to head to the North towards Los Muertos Beach or you’d rather spend your day in the South and visit Monsul and Los Genoveses beaches. Not only you will find easy to get to this places in less than 20min but also you will enjoy the atmosphere of this little town. It’s really nice the walk in the harbour and the restaurants you will find over there are high quality with reasonable price.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We absolutely loved the location, and the decor of the hotel - so tasteful in a nice, slight quirky way. We also loved the roof terrace that came with our room - the views from there were simply stunning. And the complimentary 'tea and coffee (and cakes!)' hour between 5pm and 6pm was such a lovely bonus - though did require tearing ourselves away from the gorgeous pool area! All in all, excellent and would definitely return.

Pros: The location. Our balcony had a view of San Jose and its bay. The staff was most smiling and helpful. The facilities were excellent.
Cons: We came in late at night and we found hard to find the place as the last roundabout is very dark and leads to an even darker road. There is a Vistalmar sign but we could not see it. It would help if it was lit.
